Tried to get new spare, but the same tread pattern is not available. Now the question - should I bring the car for the drive tomorrow without having a spare?
Very sorry for H4WKMobile for what has happened. How much ever careful we are, some irresponsible nuts will wack us. Same happened to my car today, as my Bro-in law took my car and scrached the right alloys :(

You can come without a spare tyre as I have a 14" spare wheel in my boot.

You should have thrashed that kid if he didn't have a license. . Hope there was no damage to the body parts? Those are trickier to handle. Come along man, lets hope Murphy's laws don't work tomorrow. The odds of getting a puncture are very very low on this route. Its flat out all the way.

Ouch that hurts. It might be risky to come without a spare. What about your bike?

I'd once had a similar experience, had the choicest of words for them. But you can't straighten the tail of a dog no matter what.

Did you manage to squeeze out some cash from that bugger for the damages? Should've kept the bike itself.

Once again. Please don't travel without a spare. Although nothing may happen tomorrow, but its better to be safe than sorry.

Regards.

Roadking can easily do 80-90 Kays easily. And i believe this would be too much for that single lane road.

Just to remind everyone, the meeting place is opposite Columbia asia at 6.30AM. We're just stopping there for a while, not parking, so it should be ok at that time .

A small request is to please be at the meeting point latest by 7 AM. It is really impossible to store 35+ phone numbers and keep calling everyone tomorrow to check if they are coming or not. We (convoy) should push off latest by 7-7.10AM, assumption being that whoever comes later than that can directly join at Doddaballapur, or else is considered absent .

See you guys tomorrow at Hebbal. Looking forward to a fun-filled meet!
